What travelers say:

The Strait of Malacca is the most important shipping strait in the world and the busiest in the world. The narrowest point at the eastern end of the Strait of Malacca is the Strait of Singapore, where it is the best place to see ships, especially oil tankers and liquefied natural gas transporters from the Middle East to East Asia.
